The high-availiablity of mission-critical data and services hosted in a virtual machine (VM) is one of the top concerns in a cloud computing environment. The live disk snapshot is an emerging technology to save the whole state and the data of a VM at a specific point of time, and be used for quick disaster recovery. However, the existing VM disk snapshot(More)
A pivotal regulator of cell polarity and homeostasis, partitioning-defective protein 6 (Par6) forms multicomponent complexes that not only regulate cell polarity and stabilize cell morphology, but have also been demonstrated to participate in the proliferation, migration and invasion of cancer cells. The transforming growth factor (TGF)-β and extracellular(More)
Heparin-binding epidermal growth factor-like growth factor (HB-EGF) belongs to the EGF family and exhibits its activity after binding to its receptors in autocrine, paracrine, and juxtacrine interactions. HB-EGF plays important roles in several biological and pathological processes, such as wound healing, blastocyst implantation, atherosclerosis, and heart(More)
A virosome is an innovative hybrid drug delivery system with advantages of both viral and non-viral vectors. Studies have shown that a virosome can carry various biologically active molecules, such as nucleic acids, peptides, proteins and small organic molecules. Targeted drug delivery using virosome-based systems can be achieved through surface(More)
Cellular senescence is a state of irreversible cell growth arrest. Increasing evidence suggests that cellular senescence contribute to tumor suppression in vivo. However, only a few anti-cancer drugs have been discovered to induce cellular senescence. Searching for new compounds which can inhibit cancer cell growth by inducing senescence is becoming one of(More)
It is unclear how, or to what extent, baculovirus DNA that has been damaged by ultraviolet (UV) light is repaired during infection and replication. In our previous study, expression of Bombyx mori nucleopolyhedrovirus (BmNPV) ORF Bm65, a homolog of Autographa californica multiple nucleopolyhedrovirus (AcMNPV) ac79, correlated with decreased inactivation of(More)
Cadmium is a toxic heavy metal present in the environment and in industrial materials. Cadmium has demonstrated carcinogenic activity that induces cell transformation, but how this occurs is unclear. We used 2D-DIGE and MALDI TOF/TOF MS combined with bioinformatics and immunoblotting to investigate the molecular mechanism of cadmium transformation. We found(More)
Identification of small-molecule compounds that can bind specifically and stably to protein targets of biological interest is a challenge task in structure-based drug design. Traditionally, several fast approaches such as empirical scoring functions and free energy analysis have been widely used to fulfill for this purpose. In the current study, we raised(More)
